"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Mar. 30 - Great Bridge, VA

Day With Friends
Atlantic Yacht Basin

This morning Stan started repairing a soft spot on the aft deck. It will take about five days to complete the process. The area needs to stay dry, so we will stay in the shed (barn) until sometime next week. We are both ready to move out into the daylight...it's very dreary in here and without the sun to warm the boat, the cabin is very chilly. We finally turned on the heat last night to take the chill out of the cabin.

Our friends Julie and Jim Bertch are in town working on their boat and finalizing plans for the MTOA Fall Rendezvous, which will be held in Portsmouth in September. Jim and Julie are co-chairmen for the event with Rick and Pat Daniels. The six of us drove to Virginia Beach for lunch, to sample Beach Bully BBQ, one of the caterers for the Rendezvous. We sampled pork, brisket, chicken and all their sides…it was very good BBQ, I’m sure everyone will enjoy the meals they cater. It was nice to take a break today from our work and we enjoyed visiting with other cruisers.
